what tail serveo/gyro for my t500
Well,I have a new t500e and looking for some feedback on what tail serveo to use..Note:I have a futaba 9253(new)but Ill need a diff mount for it?? The heli came with the mount for a mini serveo..
So,is the 9253 good for the tail or.do I use the stock mount and buy another tail serveo......
Any comments on what gyro/serveo combo works best would be great help too!(as I still need a gyro too) thanks guys btw)Iam useing 3 fut9650 for the collective

Always difficult to make specific recommendations on equipment to use. However, I have two trex 500's. Both are fitted with GY 401 gyros. One has an Align DS 520 tail servo and the other has a Futaba S9257 servo. Both combinations work well for me, I have no complaints. Both servos fit the supplied servo mount in the 500 kit.

Cheers

I have a GY520 and 9257 on my 500 and love it. I have 3 401's on other helos and it also is a fantastic gyro.

You'll be happy.

you can put a bigger tail servos if you want,just get a t600e tail servo mount and use the original 500 tail servos mount holder which is the one that goes around the boom. i have a Spartan ds760 and Futaba 9254.and it rocks!!.JR Americas

The Turnigy 2650 30C 6S is a great pack for all kinds of flying. Very reasonable price too.

Give the Inertia 860 gyro a good, close look. Runs circles around the 401 and runs in the same pack as the "big dogs". Team it up with a 9257 servo, go fly.-----

9257 and the Inertia are more than adequate for when you get to "bangin" the 500.-----
